Make challenging concepts more memorable, even unforgettable!

"Stories Trainers Tell is full of fun, entertaining, and useful stories that help bring any training alive. Use it and watch people smile and learn!"
--Ken Blanchard, coauthor, The One Minute Manager® and Whale Done!(TM)

Telling stories is a powerful way to make a point, especially when the stories are compelling, well-constructed, and poignant. This book captures thought-provoking stories contributed by trainers, nationally known speakers, consultants, business leaders, educators, and professional storytellers that help make challenging ideas and abstract concepts stick.

The stories are organized around major organizational development and training themes, such as leadership, diversity, teamwork, performance and coaching, and customer service. Accompanying each story are tips, debriefing questions, key points, and a follow-up activity to maximize its impact and learning potential.

Includes a free CD-ROM with narrative readings of each story!

Contributors include: Merrill Anderson, Jean Barbazette, Joe Barnes, Paula Bartholome, Chip Bell, Geoff Bellman, William Austin Boone, Sharon L. Bowman, Karen D. L.

From the Author:

From Lori Silverman: Stories provide a richness beyond what a short case study can provide in a training session. I personally use a number of the stories from this book and the activities that accompany them in workshops I teach on persuasion and influence, employee performance management, organizational change, ethics, leading versus managing, and the like. If there is a particular type of story you'd like and cannot find it in this resource, feel free to contact me. I have a library of stories I've captured over the last 15 years. Please keep in mind that for training purposes, both the content of the story and the story's key point need to resonate within your training and with participants.
